What is your ministry?
We are working with our national team in different parts of Romania. Our purpose is to have a ministry that trains people in how to share their faith in Christ and how to bring people from unbelief to belief. We utilize a variety of components including prayer, actual on-the-job training where the experienced lead the inexperienced, and the principle of spiritual multiplication.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I want to see the “grandchildren” in discipleship. The first generation to become disciples goes quite well, but in the second generation we see a big decrease and we try to find new ways for how to give the baton to trustworthy people eager and well equipped to pass the baton of discipleship to others. I need help vision casting for long-term impact.
What is your leadership role?
I am the chairman of the board of Evangelism Explosion Romania. I am vice president for a Romanian federation that helps people affected by disabilities.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
“Multiplication” is the key component, not just winning people to the Lord one-by-one (addition), but training those won to the Lord to win, and then train, others. In the Book of Acts, we read that the disciples “multiplied” and “multiplied exceedingly.” This shift from addition to spiritual multiplication offers the one real hope of sharing the Gospel with a world population that is itself continually multiplying. By going out with the disciples in real life and witnessing situations, people learn how to share their faith and how to disciple others. I was in a disciple maker training started in 1986 and since then I have tried to be involved continuously in this process.
